We covered a lot of topics yesterday and students got a final assignment, homework. You have to interview or have a discussion with someone who was an adult when 9/11 occurred. The homework sheet is attached below. We started our Final Exam review by going through all the CONTENT that might appear on the exam. The review and the answers are attached.
We have to catch up for the days we missed so it will be a lot of quick topics to prepare you for your final exam. We will try and get to Post-Colonialism and how it led to ethnic violence and genocide in many places, climate change, Middle East issues with Israel, and terrorism in the world.

Since you are stuck at home you can practice for the Final Exam by going over last years Study Guide. Not every question is applicable, but it's a great place to start reviewing and seeing what you know. We will be using this in class as a review tool when we eventually go back to school,
We did a lesson on how China became communist and its effect on the Cold War. We did a reading and had a discussion, took notes from a PowerPoint, and watched a short video clip. Then, we shifted our focus to another Asian communist country, North Korea, and discussed nuclear capabilities and their strange leadership. We watched a clip from VICE about Dennis Rodman, former NBA basketball player, and the only American to be invited to North Korea as an ambassador.
We are completing a review of the Cold War today. This includes a discussion, the review video posted below, and some bookwork section quizzes which will be turned in for a grade.
Yesterday we learned about the policies that drove the decision making during the Cold War. Those policies got us into many conflicts. We fought the spread of Communism in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Cuba. We took a vocabulary quiz. We did the readings below and watched some short clips on the above conflicts.

We did a new type of Kahoot called a Jumble to review the vocabulary words introduced yesterday. We watched a Dr. Seuss animated story called the Butter Battle, which was written in the height of the Cold War to help explain the arms race. Students answered questions after the video and then did a two page reading and continued answering questions on the sheet provided below. We learned about the origins of the Cold War and the political manueverings that led to it (Monroe Doctrine, Brehznev Pact, Mardshall Plan, NATO, Warsaw Pact).
We reviewed our Museum Project experience and retook the quiz that alot of students did poorly on. We introduced what the COLD WAR was. We completed vocabulary and discussed the many ways that you might fight with someone without actually fighting.
